with Denise Bolds
Racism in maternity care is well documented and it is time that we all wake up. Doula extraordinaire, Denise Bolds MSW, CD (DONA) CLC, discusses the real lived experience of birthing while Black educates us on the history behind the systemic racism in healthcare, and speaks to what we can and should be doing to support the fight. Black birth matters and we all must do our part. This episode is essential listening for everyone who works in maternity care, or honestly just lives in the world we live in today.

She is a published writer, radio show host/producer, birth advocate, public speaker, mentor, workshop facilitator, childbirth educator, a successful single mother of a 29-year-old son; Denise loves to read, hike, power walk, travel, Mexican food, music, algebra, Netflix and skydiving. She embraces a collaborative practice of her southern heritage as part of her lifestyle, supported by the tradition of spirituality.
